Martin Freeman would “consider” directing a film.
The 50-year-old actor – who is known for his roles in classics such as ‘Shaun of the Dead’ and ‘Love Actually’ – admitted he can often relate to the director on set and see himself taking the reins of a filmer at a given time.
He said: “It’s something I would consider. I think about it. I change with it, really. Sometimes when I’m on set and I see what a director is doing, I look at him and I say, “Yeah, I could do it. I would agree with this part. “
However, the ‘Black Panther’ star went on to admit that directors face “endless questions” that he’s not sure he has the “mental bandwidth” for but remains hopeful that if his confidence improves, he could take charge of a movie. .
He told Collider: “But then there are other parts of directing that I’m still not sure I have the mental bandwidth for, just with the endless questions and how you have to be through it all. I know I’d enjoy the where I rehearse with actors. I don’t know how good I’d be at the other stuff, or how much I’d enjoy that stuff. But never say never. If I have the confidence to think I could do that, so maybe I could.”
Meanwhile, Martin is set to reprise his role as Everett Ross in the MCU movie ‘Black Panther 2’ and admitted he “loves” playing the character because he’s a “good guy.”
He said, “I was going in and out of [filming] pretty quickly, I think. But I like playing Everett Ross. He’s a very fun character to play. He is very sympathetic to the story. He’s a good guy.
